Productivity everywhere: Mobility and Workplace of the Future

Chief Technologist Mobility and Workplace, HP Distinguished Technologist

 

What does the future of mobility and workplace hold? If the past few years are of any indication, we are experiencing the equivalent of the “big bang” for the digital ecosystem. Every week we see new devices, new applications, new operating systems, or variants thereof. We are now seeing the acceleration in “personal” Internet of Things or what is frequently called wearables.

 

Of course, Hollywood piques our interest. Take Tony Stark in the Iron Man movies, who is able to interact with a sophisticated avatar on projected displays by simply using gestures. (To explore this further, you might be interested to know that HP Labs is working on portable Holographic projectors.)
